When all is said and done, the decision is yours to make


(The reading starts at time stamp 4:30. There's lots of messing around with sage and unruly crystal balls before that.) It's all about established love, and new love, and learning how to blend your resources... and a wee bit about coming to important decisions on your own.

Lies, new beginnings, happiness, and obsession


*Note: I suggest that you subscribe to my Youtube channel so you receive an email notification when I post a new video. I may not always take the time to post links to these videos.

Today’s Desert Reading: Lies are no way to start a relationship, someone has an adrenalin rush with New Beginnings, happiness is right around the bend — don’t blow it, and someone is obsessed… Relationships: It’s a cruel thing when someone is given the idea with pro-longed contact that what they want so badly might be possible. It’s kinder to make a clean cut and move on, so they have the ability to move on as well.

Desert Readings ~ Lot's today about breaking unhealthy patterns


I've noticed in these early morning pre-dawn readings that I tend to digress and talk about lots of different things in among the tarot reading.  You'll probably get to know me pretty well if I continue to do these readings in this way. This reading seems to have a lot to say about breaking bad patterns.  My gawds, was I tired this morning, but it was still fun to do.

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ What was the most challenging chapter to write?


Pre-order your copy here: https://amzn.to/2FIOU1f

It was a real challenge to develop Chapter 10: Spells for Binding and Protection for my new book The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners, but it was also a ton of fun to push my own limits and really get creative. I think you'll really love this book because for those unfamiliar with Wicca, it will bring a new understanding and a starting point for spiritual growth; and for the seasoned practitioner there will be a slew of useful spells and rituals. 

Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? Pre-orders really help raise the visibility of my book on Amazon, so please grab your copy now (via the link above) and help me get to the top of the charts!

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ My favorite part of the book!


Personally, my favorite part of my new book is Chapter 3, Discovering Your Wiccan Power, because this chapter introduces the new Wiccan to those things that will make up their spiritual practice: 

  • learning how to set intentions

  • how to ground and center yourself 

  • how to cast and close a circle 

  • the kinds of tools that you'll be using 

  • how to set up an altar. 

  • as well as the importance of your own Book of Shadows and how to get started

 I'm curious what your favorite part will be!

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ Solitary Practice or Coven?


One of the most challenging aspects of your Wiccan practice and an important choice you'll make is the decision to either remain a solitary practitioner, or to join a coven. As a solitary Wiccan you will have the freedom to build a spiritual path that is uniquely personal; as a coven member, you'll be expected to meet coven rules, obligations, and milestones within a specific time frame. That’s why I included this helpful tip in chapter four of my new book, The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners. There are tons more tips and tricks like this all throughout The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners.
